4 OData Committee Specification Drafts available for review and comment - ends August 3rd

We are pleased to announce that the OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC [1] members have released four Committee Specification Drafts for review and comment. This group of documents describe various elements of the Open Data Protocol (OData).

OData enables the creation of REST-based data services, which allow resources, identified using Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) and defined in an Entity Data Model (EDM), to be published and edited by Web clients using simple HTTP messages.

The five publications released today are:

- OData Version v4.01 CSPRD02

- OData Common Schema Definition Language (CSDL) XML Representation v4.01 CSPRD02

- OData Common Schema Definition Language (CSDL) JSON Representation v4.01 CSPRD01

- OData JSON Format v4.01 CSPRD02

You can find information about the differences between Version 4.0 and 4.01 in the Committee Note "What's New in OData Version 4.01" at http://docs.oasis-open.org/odata/new-in-odata/v4.01/cn01/new-in-odata-v4....

Public Review Period:

OASIS and the OData TC value your feedback. We solicit feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.

The public review starts 05 July 2017 at 00:00 UTC and ends 03 August 2017 at 11:59 UTC.

Three of the specifications were previously submitted for public review [2]. For those, the 30-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Changes are highlighted in redlined DIFF files included in the package [3]. Comments for these draft specifications are limited to the changes from the previous public review.
